LINC project webinar: Beyond the hype of collective autonomous mobility

LINC is one of the largest projects working with autonomous collective mobility in Denmark. The project’s findings give urban planners insight into the infrastructure, physical and digital, that self-driving shuttles require. LINC’s goal is to get Autonomous Vehicles onto Danish streets and develop public transport to become the go-to green choice for Danish citizens. The project builds on a vision to provide a first/last mile service for the future Greater Copenhagen Light Rail that will support and strengthen the use of the light rail.
